The University of Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility (ND-LEEF) will host Science Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 6 (Sunday) at St. Patrick’s County Park in South Bend.

Science Sunday is an annual event where adults and children can learn about ND-LEEF and the latest research there.

Notre Dame faculty and graduate students will lead demonstrations and hands-on activities around topics such as aquatic ecology, bald eagle natural history, groundwater protection, nanoparticles, ticks and tick-borne diseases, watershed conservation, nutrient pollution and stormwater management.

The event is free and open to the public. Light snacks will be provided.

Part of the Environmental Change Initiative, a research center of Notre Dame Research, ND-LEEF is a globally unique research facility featuring linked stream, pond and wetland ecosystems. The facility includes the Morrison Family Education and Outreach Pavilion, a hub for outreach to local school groups, and is home to a pair of bald eagles.
